Strawberry Lake Sikkim
Indian & Chinese
At an approximate elevation of 13500 feet above sea level, the Strawberry Lake Sikkim has an eerie resemblance to the shape of a strawberry. Despite being much smaller than nearby lakes such as Kupup Lake and Hangu Lake, its unusual shape has made it one of the Silk Route Region's most popular lakes. The strawberry's shape, on the other hand, can only be discerned from a distance and at a specific angle. Strawberry Lake, which is fed by glacial waters from neighboring streams and rivulets, remains totally frozen in the winter.
